The Scottish Borders region

Cycling is a particular pleasure on the network of quiet lanes around Burnbrae. There are many shorter trails from most of the main towns and also some longer distance routes including the 4 Abbeys way an 88km (55 mile) circular route linking the four main abbeys in the Scottish Borders - Melrose, Dryburgh, Kelso and Jedburgh. The route follows mainly quiet roads, although short stretches on A roads are unavoidable, a scenic route that takes in many historic interest points. The Scottish Borders is now one of the most cyclist friendly areas of Scotland. In the hills are many tracks which can be cycled by those with the necessary stamina and equipment. In Glentress forest, there are extensive cycling tracks separate from walking paths.
